Seeing Pink Stars and Cake Plates...

So, I chucked the dishes, laundry and cleaning 
to have some fun with craft projects...
just in time for Pink Saturday. 

I bought a little iron scrolled candle holder and found a pretty plate at a thrift store...
glued them together with epoxy and voila...

 a lovely little cake plate!
I know...kind of basic but for my first one, not bad:)

Then, inspired by one of my favorite blogs,
I started playing with some shells and starfish.
 A bit of paint, glue and glitter...

and they're pretty in pink!

 They look good enough to eat.
Even Freddy think so...

(Now if you visit the O.C. Cottage, look at all of her beautiful glittery goodies...
but please don't compare.
She has made glittered starfish into a fine art form and clearly, 
mine are simply an afternoon craft project:)

But it's a start...and I DID have fun!

And we all need a bit more fun in our lives, right?

Hope YOU have fun visiting all of the ladies from Pink Saturday.
You can find the list of everyone participating at the beautiful blog of our host, 
Thank you Beverly!

  12. Good Morning Suzanne Sweetie...
    Oh what a beautiful share this morning for the Pink Saturday special. I love the idea that you had with this candle holder and the plate, and oh my what a beautiful way to share the beach with the use of the shells and the starfish.

    You did an awesome job. I so love the glitter and the coloring. Just gorgeous.

    And ofcourse Freddy, be still my little heart. He is so gorgeous. Look at those cow eyes he has. I love his little face Suzanne. He is gorgeous.

    Oh and Suzanne, Taylor looks so beautiful as the Snow Queen. She is absolutely exquisite. The Nutcracker could not have chosen a more beautiful Snow Queen. I am so thrilled for you all. Congrats Taylor.

    Have a gorgeous Saturday sweetie. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

    Congrats to Taylor, too! Beautiful!


  14. Hi Suzanne,
    I think it will be great fun for your daughter to make the teacup candles she will have so much fun and you as well :)

    I always start out helping my daughter on a project and end up taking over, it ends up so much fun making candles :)

    Let me know how your daughters candles turn out :)

    Have a creative weekend both of you :)

  15. Hi Suzanne Thank you for sharing your delicious starfish!

  16. I love what you did with the candle holder and pretty plate. Of course the star fish and shells are the best. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  17. Yes, we do more fun is always nice. I love your star fish, wish I could turn mine pink too.

  18. Happy Pink Saturday. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pink treasures. Loved the sparkly shells.

  19. Such a fun and easy project! Love those pink glittery starfish. I think no one glitters like the gal from O.C. Cottage. She has the system DOWN! Happy Pink Saturday Suzanne!

    *You left a comment on All That Jazz a few days ago about the paint color on a bedframe. I think the color is called Jamaican Aqua from Behr. I lost my paint chip but am pretty sure that was what the color was called. I got it at TheHomeDepot. Everybody loves that color! By the way, I just sold the bed yesterday, finally!

  20. I love your beautiful creation, it's just gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing... Happy Pink Saturday!
    Blessings~~~ Daphne

  21. Your cake plate is adorable. I would have never thought of gluing them together and I'll be sure to check out your source on the shells. I love shells and these are great. I hope I can find out what kind of paint you used. Terri
